Flask-Espresso 0.2.0

Adds Coffescript support to Flask applications


Adds Coffeescript [0] support to Flask [1] applications.

Flask-Espresso will compile on the fly your coffee-scripts in the template
directory of your application. To avoid performance issues, a cache mechanism
retrieves the scripts already compiled.

Install it

$ pip install Flask-Espresso

Note : Flask-Espresso requires you to have a javascript runtime installed on
your system.

How-to use it

A simple example to show you how to use it. Create a new Flask application and
put a coffeescript file ```` in its template directory.

from flask import Flask
from flask.ext.espresso import Espresso, espresso

app = Flask(__name__)
esp = Espresso(app)

def hello():
return espresso('')

if __name__ == "__main__":
